About Mark

I am an electrical engineer registered in the state of Florida, and have been certified to teach physics and math at the high school level. As a professional teacher of mathematics, I enjoy the subject as well as teach it. I have two daughters in school, one of whom encouraged me to teach at the high school level. Being well versed in computer technology, I look forward to online tutoring as well. My rate is competitively low, due to my belief like our 3rd President, Thomas Jefferson believed, that education should not be a costly endeavor.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I tutor all high school math, including Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

I have taught / tutored continuously Algebra 2, including a class of home schoolers who opted for a teacher to help them. We completed the assigned Algebra 2 textbook, and literally decorated the room with their graphs that everyone of them contributed.

Calculus

I have taught high school physics and calculus.

Chemistry

I have taught high school physics and calculus, and tutored chemistry, since it has some overlap with the subject of physics.

GED

Having appreciated all my education, always still remember the basic three R's, Reading, aRithmetic, and wRiting. I have taught GED with enthusiasm, since these three concepts are what it takes to secure a strong education foundation, such as what GED represents. =)

Geometry

I have taught / tutored continuously Geometry, including a home schooler who opted for a teacher to help her. We completed the assigned Geometry 2 textbook. Afterward, I received feedback from her mother, that she was very happy with her daughter's math grade that year.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel extensively in my work as an Electrical Engineer, and in general with physics and math education. I have taught basic Microsoft Excel skills to adults in night school.

Physics

I have taught high school physics.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching and tutoring pre-algebra, as it provides the basic foundations for all high school math.

Precalculus

I have taught / tutored continuously pre-calculus / trigonometry, including a workshop over a summer. Successfully had students receive good grades in this subject, as well given them confidence to explain their math to the entire class at the board.

Trigonometry

Trigonometry is a good, more rigorous math for upper level high school students, and excellent preparation for eventually taking calculus. I have both tutored continuously and taught a class in trigonometry. All math requires repetitive exercises, none more so than trigonometry! I have been able to increase students' confidence in class and grades on tests, also helping them to encourage each other to excel with this math.

Knows his Physics

Mark was great. It was knowledgeable and patient with my fifteen-year-old son. He knows his physics and I would recommend him to anyone who's looking for a tutor.
